“Farmers: Growing Community By Inspiring Healthy, Whole, Abundant Living.”

We at homesteads, a passionate group of ex-corporates duly realise that farmers are the backbone of our nation, with over 70 per cent of Indian households still dependent on farming. However, over the last few decades, farmers have become the forgotten workers of the nation. What we intend to achieve at homesteads is to create diverse engagement for farmers to revive their experience for farm owners and green enthusiasts.

It has been observed over the years that farmers are moving away from agriculture due to lack of justifiable returns from their toil. We at Homesteads intend to provide varied market exposure to our members while efficiently utilizing the generation-old experiences that the farmers have learned over time.

Below is a list of some of the services we are strong at, with which we hope a deliverable start to revolutionising the urban agricultural community in India.

or individual entrepreneurs on the one hand and economically weaker farmers on the other. It is, however, an approach that can contribute to both increased income for farmers and higher profitability for sponsors. When efficiently organized and managed, contract farming reduces risk and uncertainty for both parties as compared to buying and selling crops on the open market.

Critics of contract farming tend to emphasize the inequality of the relationship and the stronger position of sponsors with respect to that of growers. Contract farming is viewed as essentially benefiting sponsors by enabling them to obtain cheap labour and to transfer risks to growers. However, this view contrasts with the increasing attention that contract farming is receiving in many countries, as evidence indicates that it represents a way of reducing uncertainty for both parties. Furthermore, it will inevitably prove difficult to maintain a relationship where benefits are unfairly distributed between sponsors and growers. 

The advantages, disadvantages and problems arising from contract farming will vary according to the physical, social and market environments. More specifically, the distribution of risks will depend on such factors as the nature of the markets for both the raw material and the processed product, the availability of alternative earning opportunities for farmers, and the extent to which relevant technical information is provided to the contracted farmers. These factors are likely to change over time, as will the distribution of risks.
